  1. In being a PW student in my junior year, I am certainly familiar with The Writing Center. Recently, during my search for summer internships I’ve asked some Writing Center consultants in my classes for some good suggestions, and I was directed here. I am interested in a career in Website Management & Developing, so I believe this position would be very beneficial to me. I would be very interested to continue to keep in contact with, learn more about, and apply for possible positions at The Writing Center.

    I am in the PW program with a focus on the Digital & Technical Writing track. I have my own site I’ve made from scratch, and it was created using HTML and CSS code. I believe my skills and personality will both easily blend into, and enhance The Writing Center.

    In the link to my website you can find my resume and my portfolio samples. I would appreciate the chance to sit down and talk further about the position if I am considered for it. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to speaking with you soon about this opportunity.

    Best Regards,

    -Nick Simon
